In this paper, the authors deal with the interactions between different types of devices and a SaaS (Software as a Service) Management System. It is their goal to provide a generic way by which users interface with their devices in terms of getting information and actually being able to communicate with them. Their effort in this proposal is the establishment of these interactions while assuring a set of requirements such as privacy, authentication, association of multiple devices to a user, etc. They provide the architectural means to support this view and ensure the communication of the IoT (Internet of Things) devices with a Cloud of Web Services, while maintaining the M2M (Machine 2 Machine) vision.
